1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I recently purchased a Droid X. I have never run a droid before. However I am a technician. I am not a novice user.
    When I try to ping my phone over the network I am getting a lot of requests timed out. or pings in the range of 2000-4000ms. I have hooked several other devices to my wireless and found I can ping them fine. Including other phones (2 different iphones to be exact). In trouble shooting I have tried uninstalling my auto task killer. Going through and killing each service 1 by 1 to see what effect it would have on pinging. I have installed Spare Parts and told the wireless never to turn off. I have set my battery mode to Performance Mode. I have uninstalled any apps that I installed which there wasn't that many (task killer, choices of broadsides, compass, and WYSE).
    Here is where it gets strange. I downloaded an app called Speed Test to see what it would say. Whenever I run the speed test itself, not just the app, my pings will go to 2-4ms for the duration of the test.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Motorola doesn't seem to like motorola

    So I have been playing with this all night. It would seem that at my home network things work perfectly fine. The difference? I have a $50 Netgear wireless referb. At the office I have a $2000 Symbol wireless switch. (Symbol is made by motorola). Go figure it doesn't work right at the office, but it does at home. I brought the $50 netgear in with me. Rogue access point anyone?

    I would guess that at your office it's either connecting to the N band instead of G, or you're using WPA/WPA2 with AES encryption. TKIP encryption works much better with the DX, as does G over B. Known bugs.

    You are correct

    I set up the cheapo netgear with Tkip and it runs like a champ. I am in the process of reconfiguring the g singal from our higher end router. I would have never found that if I didn't bring the cheap router in.
